NYC Parks and Recreation recently announced that an eight-block stretch of the Broadway Malls in Harlem was restored from West 145th Street through West 153rd Street. The restoration project was completed six months ahead of schedule and was funded with capital allocations of $605,000 from Borough President Stringer and $91,000 from Mayor Bloomberg. The NYC Parks & Recreation was a partner as well in this project.
“The stretch of malls on Broadway between 145th Street and 153rd Street [in Harlem] were well deserving of a restoration and beautification,” said Robert Herrmann, Chairman of the Broadway Mall Association in a news release. “The Broadway Mall Association maintains almost five miles of parkland along the Upper West Side…”
